Schizophrenia. Really? Wow. That does make more sense. I'm sorry. Damn. I'm really sorry.

OK, but who defines "legitimate"? A decade ago, much of what Snowden has
revealed was only brought up by "mad tinhatters".

It's fine to block doxxers, spammers, and so on.

Yeah, I was struggling with that too. At the risk of being
disrespectful, I think that "legitimate" can probably be defined as
"containing some technical understanding and rigor, and not apparently a
product of paranoid schizophrenia or a related disorder". I'm not sure
that we should block anything, but this dilemma is worth discussing
because it's a chronic problem on most popular security-related mailing
lists.
